Alright, this is my idea for what I think will be a very interesting role play. I've noticed that most stories about nuclear holocaust take place right before the bombs start falling or years after they have already hit. SO I'm aiming this story at right when they hit and right afterward.
The game will begin just as the news of the naval battle reaches the U.S. Nuclear war would be less than an hour away from breaking out, the game will be broken up into three major chapters (at least for now. there maybe more chapters as time goes on) the first chapter of the game would include the players getting to a shelter in order to survive. I see this as taking no more than 2 or 3 posts per player. It's not meant to be the meat of the rp. More of the appetizer
The second chapter will take place in their shelters and will include them waiting out the fallout inside said shelter, attempting to cope with the horror of what has happened, and attempting to survive/get along, the third chapter(and possibly the final/permanent setting) would involve them trying to survive in what is left of the world after the radiation processors have made it safe to go outside. As well as them encountering what ever dangers may be lurking about.

[b]Items[/b](please be realistic. I.E. no "I always carry a bazooka with me when I go to work" sort of things. Though a handgun or something is acceptable):
I'm looking for somewhere between 3 and 5 other players to take part in the game. Hope to see some interest
